Create Along With Us - Happy Birthday


Create Along With Us, time, at PTI, as we enjoy the designers' creations,
and find inspiration from every beautiful card!
This card by Laurie Schmidlin, hi lighting a new set
this month, Ivy & Bloom, caught my eye. To be truthful, every card
has elements that are standouts, and I love to file away all the 
clever details each month. But take another look at Laurie's card.


Pale grey on a white bg, window with sentiment inside, colorful accents, 
wreath like frame with floral accents, and color combo,
That's what I cased.


My card was built on the Garden Garland die, cut from Soft Stone card stock.
All those pretty posies are also from the die set.
The window is cut from the smaller die from Fun Frames.
Sentiment: Lovely Lace.
Berry Sprigs: Beautiful Berries: Spring
Laurie backed her top window with foam, lifting it up, (which I wish I had done.)
Black dots complete the card. 


Laurie's colors were something I just had to duplicate.
Loved this combination, and intend to use it again.

  13. Nancy, you've done another fabulous job of combining stamps and dies and love your color combo of posies with the Soft Stone. We're on vacation so just got to checking emails and appreciate your comment. I got lucky and am overdue to order so this will definitely help.
